§58617. Supported Living Arrangement Costs.
(a) Before SLS is provided to a consumer, the projected annual cost of the consumer's SLA, as determined through the consumer's IPP process, shall not exceed the total annual cost of regional center funded services and supports that would be provided if the consumer were served in an appropriate licensed residential facility, as identified through the IPP process, provided:
(1) The total annual cost of services and supports shall include all regional center costs for residential placement (or costs incurred by the State for 24-hour long-term health care), community-based day program, transportation, and other services and supports; and
(2) The appropriate licensed facility for a consumer who is living in a licensed facility at the time of the cost comparison shall be that licensed facility.
(b) Notwithstanding (a), when the consumer does not reside in a licensed facility the projected annual cost of a consumer's SLA shall be deemed to have met the requirements of (a) when the cost is within the range of annual costs of SLAs for other consumers with comparable needs for regional center services and supports, who are currently receiving SLS from the regional center.
(c) Notwithstanding (a), the projected annual cost of a consumer's SLA shall be deemed to have met the requirements of (a) when the consumer is one of a group of consumers receiving, or projected to receive, SLS services from the same vendor, provided the aggregate cost to the regional center of the SLAs of the grouped consumers does not exceed the total cost to the regional center that would have resulted had the costs for services and supports for each of the grouped consumers been determined individually in accordance with (a).
